MARIANNE FAITHFULL LAUNCHES RICOH ARENA MUSIC NEW SERIES OF ‘AN EVENING WITH....’
Singer, songwriter, actress and 60's Rock and pop icon Marianne Faithfull is to be the first artist to perform at the launch of a new music events programme at the Ricoh Arena.
The event will be the first of a series of shows as part of the Ricoh Arena’s music series, ‘An Evening With…’ where will 500 guests will be treated to a sumptuous three-course dining experience followed by a very intimate show with a legendary act in the E.ON Lounge.
The first of these evenings will take place on Friday, December 11th with the captivating Marianne Faithfull at 7pm.
The 50th anniversary of the beginning of Faithfull’s recording career was marked in 2014 - five decades on from a fateful 1964 party in London where she was spotted, at the age of 17, by The Rolling Stones’ manager Andrew Loog Oldham.
Just three months after the party, Faithfull found herself in the limelight as a top ten pop star with her evocative take on Jagger/Richards’ ‘As Tears Go By’.
She has gone on to enjoy an eventful life and produced a wide and varied catalogue of albums, and a string of favourites will be performed at the Ricoh Arena on December 11.
Andy Gibb, Ricoh Arena Managing Director, said: “World-class music has always and will continue to play a key part of the Ricoh Arena experience as we look to engage music fans of all ages and tastes.
“An Evening With...’ will be a special evening for guests to attend on a regular basis and we are delighted that Marianne Faithfull is launching the series. We will be announcing more dates, acts and events in the near future.”
